GeoGenix Completes Barrel-Roof PV Installation


GeoGenix, a Rumson, N.J.-based commercial and residential solar installer, has completed a 100 kW solar array at American Industrial Supply's new headquarters in Perth Amboy, N.J.

‘This wasn't your typical commercial installation on a flat roof, and we welcomed the challenge of installing solar panels on a curved barrel roof,’ notes Gaurav Naik, partner at GeoGenix.

The solar array was anchored to the building structure to conform to the geometrical shape of the barrel roof and engineered to handle wind loads with penetrations that were sealed prior to anchoring the panels in order to provide a complete integral solution and avoid any leakage or warranty issues, the company explains.

The installation is expected to produce over 100,000 kWh of electricity annually.
